Link Road for Korangi
The chief minister also approved construction of a 12km Link Road for Korangi starting from Creek Avenue, Korangi Causeway Intersection and ending at PAF Airmen Golf Club.

Wastewater Recycling Plant
The Municipal Wastewater Recycling Plant at TP-1 aims at supplying 50mgd of recycled wastewater in two phases, 30 and 50 at Haroonabad Wastewater Treatment Plant for SITE. A private party would be engaged to take over the water supply to industries, carry out the operations and maintenance, up-grade it and establish the water supply infrastructure.
The chief minister was told that the project advisors, the ADB, has completed its structuring and risk matrix. A network of pipelines will be laid to distribute water to SITE.
30mgd water supply project
The 30mgd water supply project will involve a dedicated bulk water transmission system from Dhabeji to Korangi Crossing. Out of this 10mgd will be provided to the Dhabeji Industrial Zone and 20mgd to District South.
The project will include the construction of a conduit, rising main, pumping station and a water reservoir at Dhabeji, a pipeline from Dhabeji to Korangi Crossing and a pumping station and filter plant at Korangi Crossing.
The water would be distributed through the existing network of KW&SB and the cantonment board.
The KWS&B is interested in establishing a Wastewater Treatment Plant Project at TP-IV. This project includes the design, construction and management of an 180mgd primary and secondary treatment plant. The Public Private Partnership office of the ADB is in the process of hiring consultants to carry out a feasibility study.
The Asian Development Bank’s Office of Public Private Partnership submitted an Expression of Interest to undertake Transaction Advisory Services for the TP-4 Project. The CM said the project has already been approved in the 30th PPP Policy Board meeting.
